VLADIVOSTOK, November 18, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Pacific Fleet destroyer Admiral Vinogradov has finished its unofficial visit to the port of Yangon, Myanmar, and is bound for active service at sea, a fleet spokesman said on Monday.
The vessel had been moored in Yangon since November for a festival program. This had set the stage for meetings with the Russian ambassador to Myanmar and the naval base command alongside visits to Yangon city hall and the office of the Yangon administrative region's chief minister.
Myanmar military shipbuilders, engineers and technicians had the opportunity to tour the ship while the vessel's sailors could visit the main shipyards and the command training centre of Myanmar's navy.
In waters elsewhere, the Pacific Fleet currently has task forces deployed in the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean. The tanker Boris Butoma dropped anchor in the Egyptian port of Bur Safaga on November 14. The destroyer Admiral Panteleyev and the tanker Pechenga visited the port of Salalah, Oman, and the missile-carrying cruiser Varyag was in Alexandria, Egypt, from November 11 to 16.
These visits are part of a two-month tour of duty for Russia’s Pacific Fleet. Starting from October 19, Russian vessels have carried out a series of missions in the Asia-Pacific region, also visiting the Egyptian ports of Bur Safaga and Alexandria, Salalah in Oman, Sri Lanka's Trincomalee, Limassol in Cyprus and Busan in South Korea.
